Tallahassee Massage Therapy Questions
There are many questions that people have when visiting a new MassageTherapist. Find some of the most common questions people have below. If something is still unclear, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
DO YOU PERFORM PREGNANCY MASSAGE?
At this time I do not. However, feel free to reach out to me and I can help you find a wonderful therapist who does!
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
Unfortunately, most insurance plans do not cover massage therapy services. All appointments must be paid in full at the time of service. I am always more than happy to provide a superbill to anyone whose health insurance covers massage therapy.
WHAT KIND OF CREAMS OR OILS DO YOU USE?
I avoid using massage lotions or creams due to how the emulsifiers in them affect the skin. You can read my blog post that explains why in more detail. I use massage oils and body butter from a brand I know and trust that includes a base of grapeseed oil that is infused with herbs such as calendula, licorice root, plantain, and more. The oils are not only hydrating to the skin but nutritive as well. Check out Ora's Amazing Herbal for more information. Please advise me if you have any allergies to nut/seed oils.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
For all initial sessions, I recommend booking a free 10 Minute Consultation with your massage. During this time we will discuss your issues, and what your goals with massage are. Then I will briefly palpate various parts of the body to determine what needs to be worked on and make a plan for your session. If multiple sessions are needed we can discuss this at this time. I do offer discounts when massage packages are purchased.
